Beyond Efficiency: Unveiling the Embodied Carbon Challenge in Low-Carbon Construction

PHA LIve NG 011024 Elisabeth B

Elisabeth Baudinaud, Founder of Carbon Wise, joined our January Next Gen series with an insightful discussion on embodied carbon. Join us for an exploration beyond energy efficiency, as Elisabeth delves into the nuanced dimensions surrounding the environmental impact deeply embedded in the materials and processes crucial to low-carbon construction practices. In this session, Elisabeth will articulate why a sole focus on increasing energy efficiency is insufficient. She will underscore the vital necessity to address and mitigate the environmental repercussions inherent in the materials and processes integral to sustainable construction practices. As an esteemed leader in policy development and community resiliency, Elisabeth's wealth of experience and dedication to advancing low-carbon construction practices have propelled the establishment of Carbon Wise.
